Pilot Door Systems, Inc. was founded in 2005 when the former Roll-Rite/Roll-A-Flex Door Company closed its doors. Then the Operations Manager of the Texas facility, Jan Gorringe saw the potential that existed in the equipment that was up for sale.
The manufacturing equipment was purchased, moved to Pleasant Grove Utah, and Pilot Door Systems Inc. was in business.
Aware of the issues inherent in curtain door designs, Pilot immediately began looking at ways to improve the design and function of the door. Collaborating with storage facility owners and managers, general contractors and building suppliers; Pilot was anxious and excited to bring innovative changes to the industry - R & D went into overdrive, new equipment was purchased and production and improvements started in earnest.
From our innovations in bearing and tensioner design, to the improvements we have made in spring, drum, curtain and track function – Pilot Door Systems continues to push forward in providing the best possible doors and related products to the self-storage industry.
